PADS® PCB Design Tools Description:

A complete, but lower-cost PCB design solution for smaller organizations or individuals

PADS®, Mentor Graphics’ world-leading desktop PCB design tool, enables you to develop PCBs within a highly productive, scalable, and easy-to-use environment.

PADS solutions cover the spectrum of PCB development, from schematic entry to manufacturing preparation. But, unlike other products, we’re not ‘one-size-fits-all.’ With PADS you buy what you need. PADS Suites, available in three configurations, are our newest solutions, tailored to meet the design needs of each individual.

Major Benefits:

  • Proven, reliable PCB design technology
  • Powerful, yet easy-to-use
  • Scalable to grow as your requirements grow
  • Advanced capabilities to tackle complex design problems with accuracy and ease
  • Offers capabilities for highspeed, thermal, and power integrity analysis, analog and RF design, FPGA to PCB optimization, manufacturing prep, and more

System Design

The PADS flow delivers the most robust system design captur and definition functionality available, including intuitive project and design navigation, unlimited hierarchical support, design reuse, advanced design attribute and rules management, full forward/back annotation including design rules, cross-probing with layout and routing, and a direct schematic-to-signalintegrity analysis link.

PCB Layout

As the standard in desktop PCB layout tools, PADS offers unparalleled price-performance for the layout and design of complex circuit boards, including high speed applications and RF circuits. PADS offers advanced design rules with real-time design rule checking, bi-directional crossprobing, RF design functionality, split-plane generation, auto-dimensioning, direct DXF import into both the board and part library editors, advanced fabrication verification tools, and 3D viewing. Also available are assembly variant functions, test coverage auditing, physical design reuse module, chip-on-board / advanced packaging, and an IDF link to third-party CAD/CAM tools.
